TWO MEN AND A TRUCK ® is well-known as a professional moving company, but we also take pride in being active and charitable members of our communities. As a matter of fact, one of our Core Values is giving back – helping out our local communities by supporting local charities and their events.
We don’t believe charity should be limited to the holidays. All year long,, our franchises look within their community to see where they can help. Here are some example of how TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® gives back to our local communities and some ‘events that we like to participate in.
Many of our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises provide bi-weekly or monthly drop-offs for Habitat for Humanity. They arrange the pick-up and delivery of customers’ furniture that’s still in good condition, to their local Habitat for Humanity.
Many of our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations organize food drives and volunteer their time during Thanksgiving and key times of need throughout the year. Franchises will often work with their local Food Bank or Salvation Army to help collect donations. Once the event is done, they will then help to deliver all of the food that was donated.
On top of organizing food drives, some of our locations work with charities to collect toys throughout the months of November and December for families in need to be able to provide presents to their children at Christmas.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Ottawa is one of our franchises that actively participates in these types of events. In the past they’ve partnered with Toy Mountain, picking up all toy donations from around the city of Ottawa. Last year their team collected 20,000 children’s toys!
Walk A Mile In Her Shoes
One of the initiatives that some of our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchises in the Toronto area have participated in is Walk A Mile in Her Shoes. The event is organized as a symbolic gesture of men marching in women’s footwear to raise awareness and money to help fight the problem of violence against women. Our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Barrie & Central Ontario location recently participated in this event.
The Mikey On Board Program
The Mikey Network is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canada’s “charity of choice.”, Founded in 2003 this charity works to create public awareness and provide education about heart-healthy lifestyles, and place life-saving defibrillators in as many public places as possible
As part of their Mikey On Board program, all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canada moving trucks are equipped with a defibrillator, which they call a MIKEY, and all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Canadian franchisees, as well as all movers, drivers, and staff, have been trained to use a MIKEY.
If you are a charity or know of one that would benefit from our help, be sure to visit our site and contact your local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to see how we can help.
